1. He/she didnt cut the copywrite items off the bottom as some peps would do.
Does not mean that if he didn't cut the copyright bar, he can use the photos as he wish even if its not commercial.
The following is clearly specified on Airliners.net :
"You have limited rights to personally view the images with your web browser and to use them as your personal computer wallpaper (or background image) on your own computer. These photos may not otherwise be reproduced, distributed, cropped, resized, or otherwise altered without the written permission of the photographer........"
"You may not use these photos on any web page, commercial or non-commercial, for profit or non-profit, without written permission from the photographer........"
We can't also disable the right click on the photos because there are other ways to retrieve them, like for e.g. doing a screencapture or saving the whole page itself.
I think what DM
should do is to subclass the menu that appears when the visitor right clicks on the photo. Instead of the menu, when someone right clicks on the shot a message box with the above sentences that i've quoted should be displayed. Its only after the visitor closes the message box that the full menu is displayed. I'm not saying that this is going to stop photo theft completely but its going to be reduced to a great extent.
See, those guys hosting the shots on Flickr, i'm sure they've never read the sentences i've quoted above. If they were aware of it, they would never have done that.
Well thats only my 2 cents. The rest depends on DM
The way I see it, you can either work for a living or you can fly airplanes. Me, I'd rather fly.
